Ferdinand: Frustration and disappointment sums up the season so far

by Sam Peoples

Frustration, disappointment, diabolical, dire, atrocious, underwhelming, unsatisfactory.

No matter what superlative you attach to describe Manchester United’s season, it doesn’t paint a pretty picture.

Rio Ferdinand has taken to Twitter to voice his own frustration and disappointment with what has happened in the understatement of the century.

Everybody expected a tough year following Fergie’s departure but nobody expected United to transform from a title winning side to one that had about as much competitive edge as a six year old playing connect four.

Under David Moyes, our confidence in winning has been replaced with a mentality that almost expects defeat. Losing isn’t a surprise any more.

On a personal level for Ferdinand, his season has been very frustrating as he has seemed more interested in laying the foundations for his post-United career than playing for the team, but no player is a scapegoat this season. It’s a collective problem.

Some argue that £200 million in the summer will help Moyes transform this United side and take it back to the top but he has already spent £70 million and we look worse.
